Welcome to the Guest Room…

We are delighted to welcome you to our family home which we have been running as a Bed and Breakfast for the past 12 years. Having worked in small hotels, we have had many years’ experience of offering hospitality, and having travelled extensively, we also understand the importance of getting it right. We want to make your stay as relaxing and comfortable as possible, offering the same high standards we would expect ourselves when staying away from home.

Every guest is looking for a unique experience and we want to provide our visitors with the best possible guidance, whether this is recommending ways in which to spend your day, putting together a picnic, or sitting around our kitchen table with a map of Scotland planning your trip further afield.

Our location within the New Town of Edinburgh

Situated in the heart of the historic Georgian New Town of Edinburgh, Nelson Street is a perfect location from which to explore the city. If you are coming in to town from the airport, the tram stop is a five minute walk, as is the bus station. Waverley train station is also within easy walking distance. Shops, cafes, restaurants and art galleries are all a stone’s throw away. At the end of your day, you will find the Guest Room a welcoming haven to come back to, tucked away in a quiet corner off a wide cobbled street… downhill all the way! If the hills intimidate you, local buses are on hand.

If you feel like a stroll in the beautiful surroundings of the private Drummond Place Gardens over the road, please ask us for the key.
